Her experience working with a broad variety of media and collection types including modern, contemporary and photographic masterpieces, ancient Chinese bronzes, African terracottas, Egyptian works, Chinese furniture, and decorative objects, among others, matches her clients' needs for expert management of a broad spectrum of fine art collections.
